Patent Applied: Suzhou Eagle BX EV roadster will see Production in China
Published on February 1, 2013 by Tycho de Feijter
Suzhou Eagle has applied for patent on the very sporty BX EV, an electric roadster with a CC-roof. The vehicle will be launched on the China car market sometime next year and has to become the Chinese equivalent of the Tesla Roadster S. Sadly, no word yet on power. Suzhou Eagle however is very able to make a strong electric motor, the company has long experience in making all sorts of electric vehicles, ranging from small golf cars to large delivery vans.
The Suzhou Eagle BX EV debuted as a concept on the 2011 Jiangsu New Energy Automobile Exhibition. At the time Suzhou Eagle said top speed was 60 kilometer per hour, and range 120 kilometer. Not nearly enough to beat that Tesla. We must assume the real thing will be much faster. The front of the vehicle has been redesigned, patent drawings show a more linear bonnet with different head lights and a different grille.
Great profile. And no worry about batteries, Suzhou Eagle can go shopping for the best at Wanxiang.
Two seats only, like the Tesla.
Still attractive with the roof up. Well, we always like a mad idea. Suzhou has the resources to build it, so let it come.
